Subject: need to know backspacing for 2000 9-3 rims...

Hi... The other night I hit was appears to be a piece of 4"x4" lumber lying on the interstate, at around 70mph. The front passenger-side rim is beyond repair, with the side of the bead having been ripped away. Amazingly, the tire didn't come off and it's holding air. The rear passenger side is also damaged, but I can't tell to what extent. I need replacements immediately, since this is my only vehicle. Financially, it's terrible timing. So rather than replace them with factory rims, or nice aftermarket rims, I'm looking to just get a set of cheap, black steel rims to make it safe until next month after I've moved into the new home. Does anyone know the proper amount of backspacing for the rims? They are stock 15" wheels, and I believe 7" wide. Also, the bolt pattern measurements (mm) would be helpful. Thanks, ~jp
